Thanks. That was my point. Maybe I didn't explain it well. Sure they'll work hard to get better at their game, but not at running a system they won't ever be seeing in the pros.This statement is the key. Plenty (probably the majority) of OAD players know that they are going to the NBA and are willing to put in the work to build skillsets that will benefit them at that level. Those guys don't want to press on D and run a weave offense because those skills don't translate to the NBA game. It iisn't a matter of "lazy" OADs that want to coast for a year and then go pro, these guys simply don't want to waste time and effort learning and executing a system that they will never be asked to run in the pros.
To use a football analogy, no high school 5 star QB is going to commit to a college team that runs the wishbone...
